I love this quirky graffiti that you can see just before (or after) Berwick Upon Tweed on the east coast line. I’ve tried several times to capture it and have failed to get a useable shot but this time it was perfect.
For as long as I can remember, this showroom has been selling secondhand luxury cars on the Uxbridge Road in Hanwell.
The story was terrible with the dullest, most unbelievable love triangle. There was no chemistry between Jack and Nellie and her change of allegiance at the end was as unmotivated as the rest of her behaviour throughout the film.
However, despite this, the film was a lot of fun to watch. The fine looking leads gave equally fine performances. But it was the extras that made it so enjoyable. The fairground and boxing scenes looked authentic, there was great trick photography for the Albert Hall, a thoroughly delightful jazzy dance at a party, inventive camera angles, and a variety of special effects.

I took this in December 2013 on a particularly foggy day. I just happened to be walking by the cemetery when I had the notion the fog might be doing something special inside.
This is the City of Westminster cemetery on the south side of the Uxbridge road.
